Have you ever picked up a pattern and thought, “Boy I’d love to sew this, if only the Neckline were shaped differently. Or if only the sleeves were a different style, the skirt wasn’t so curved, the bodice of this pattern was attached to the lower half of this other pattern.” In this 3-hour class, Brittani will guide you through the steps necessary to make those changes to your could-be-favorite patterns!
She will help you determine what alterations can be made to your pattern BEFORE you even cut it out! Then Brittani will guide you through making adjustments to any pattern pieces affected by your alteration. She will take a look with you at your pattern instructions and help to note how you may need to sew your garment up differently than what is advised.
*Please note that in this class, the goal of this class is to pick up the skills necessary to make adjustments to your patterns before the sewing process begins.
